Property Development Group Starship is launching its first zero carbon affordable homes on the Wirral which will be built at its off-site manufacturing facility in Deeside.
These first three zero carbon homes will provide over 105 M2 of modern, affordable living space which will be installed in as little as seven days ready for internal fit out.
Starship’s unique panellised model means that a new home can be delivered and installed anywhere where a refuse collection vehicle can fit, with no special arrangements or unnecessary disruption to the community.
Their focus on driving local enterprise means that local contractors are used to provide internal fit out and finishing works meaning that maximum economic impact is delivered locally.
This development is being completed in New Ferry on the Wirral at a site that was rocked by the 2017 explosion of a commercial premises which devastated the immediate community and is one of the first regeneration projects in the area.
Starship have agreed a deal with a registered provider to acquire these homes and are working with other providers and private investors to deliver more of these innovate affordable homes.
Starship Group was formed in 2020 following the acquisition and merger of several existing property development and construction businesses and is backed by a private investment fund. The newly branded group has previously built over £75m of residential projects across the North West, Worcestershire and Oxfordshire. The group already has over £30m of developments in progress with a further £50m in negotiation.
In addition to its core property development activities Starship is investing in cutting edge modern construction methods to meet the UK’s growing housing demand. In 2020 Starship launched its first manufacturing facility in Deeside which is the first of a number of planned manufacturing centres that will open across 2021/22.
Dave Dargan, Director of Starship said: “We are delighted to be delivering these innovative low carbon homes in a community that has seen some significant challenges over the past 5 years. To be bringing such an exciting project to the area is fantastic and creating a real buzz. These spacious homes will have the lowest running costs of any property in the immediate area and are delivering more affordable living for local people.
“Our homes are hand build in our manufacturing centres and finished by local contractors so each and every home we deliver creates real jobs and real local opportunities for people.”
